Leaked earphones
New mockup spied and headphones leaked

The rumors about the next-generation iPhone continue to build as we near a rumored September launch date for the device. During IFA in Berlin last week, a mockup of the next generation iPhone turned up on video in the hands of DSM Israel's CEO.
The video shows an iPhone with an all-metal back and the new heavily rumored smaller dock connector. If true, that smaller dock connector might as well be an annuity for iPhone accessory makers, as everyone will have to buy new accessories such as docks.
Rumors continue to point to an official Apple event on September 12 to unveil a new iPhone and the device is expected to start shipping later in the month.
In case you're wondering, GSM Israel laid hands on the phone via an unnamed manufacturer of cases and accessories for the iPhone. It would make sense that an accessory company would have early access to mockups of the next-generation iPhone to allow them to have cases ready when the device launches. In fact, in the past the first real glimpses of iPhone mockups or prototypes did in fact come from accessory makers.
Another recently leaked image claims to show the new design of the earphones that will ship with the next-generation iPhone. The earphones have an opening on the side and a small slit in the body for sound rather than having a speaker grill on the front of the earphones. It appears the large side port could be some sort of bass expansion port. It also appears that the headphones are made from one piece of plastic rather than multiple pieces.

OK wtf happened with DT ? As of recently I cannot rate Tony Swash down anymore even though the site says I have certain number of votes (larger tahn 0) left for this article.

Yes, I'm logged in, yes I'm using trhe same login info I always have, yes I'm still using same web browser, yes I have tried it in other articles as wel ... it's just not working.

Do I really need to create a new account just to be able to vote again ?

No, you just need to refresh after voting.
I use Ubuntu as my operating system and use Firefox and did use Opera, although I've had to temporarily remove Opera as it was hindering updates (yeah, I know, sounds bizarre, but that's another story), and I had found the same thing. I think Opera was affected more than Firefox.
My guess is Daily Tech does work perfectly with whatever browser it considers as the default browser.
Anyway, vote, then refresh. At least we can still post comments.

Nothing has changed 1 bit on my end and I can't either, if I refresh the page, the voting options go away even without posting. Something is wrong with the site and has been since it had issues last week.

My experience (since last week) is that someone effed up the ajax that updates the buttons and rating count for the posts or the mozilla update is incompatible with it.

So when you click, it seems that the rating is recorded, but the count is not updated and the rate up/down buttons do not go away. When you refresh, you find your rating was applied and you may not have any more available ratings.

At least that's what it seems to be.

Similar issue/solution with Chrome.

If I really cared I would open the developer tools and see if there were any exceptions being thrown or the AJAX/JSON call backs were being received.
